Canadian Surveillance Bill Returns

Drew Wilson has published an article on Slyck that describes the private members bill tabled by the Liberals (Specifically Marlene Jennings, Liberal "Justice" critic) to increasing surveillance on online activities, and circumvent much of the privacy rights of Canadians.

In typical Orwellian double-speak style, it is called An Act regulating telecommunications facilities to facilitate the lawful interception of information transmitted by means of those facilities and respecting the provision of telecommunications subscriber information. Beyond the privacy implications, it will also have a massive economic expense as the Canadian Internet backbone is redesigned to facilitate this excessive surveillance.
